“This is a favorite Filipino vegetable dish, although the slightly bitter taste of bitter melon needs a lot of getting used to. Cooking it this way lightens the bitter taste.”

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the hot oil until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Mix the pork into the onion and garlic; cook until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir the prawns into the mixture and cook until no longer translucent, about 5 minutes more. Add the tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the tomatoes soften, about 5 minutes. Stir the bitter melon through the mixture and cook until the melon is tender, about 5 minutes. Serve hot.

Bitter melon is different but good to stabilize blood sugar. I added ginger, didn't have tomato and used "patis" instead of using shrimp. Boiled bitter melon first to remove some of the bitterness; used vegetable broth to simmer and marry flavors. Also added black bean garlic sauce. My husband liked it.
